Twine Love...

I love to package up my gifts in simple brown paper and tie them in twine - the old fashioned way. It's simple, I know, but with all of the lovely twines you can get a hold of these days, it makes for a lovely looking gift. I admit that I'm a little obsessed - picking up different types of twine at every opportunity to add to my collection. This pic from Whole Living mag reminded me of my love of twine and how beautiful it looks grouped into displays. I hope you like it to...

I love twine too. I sometimes see a beautiful spool and talk myself out of buying it then, of course, I end up wrapping a present and wishing I had bought it! I should just learn that is is one of those things that you can never have too much of.
